Tennessee Titans vs. Kansas City Chiefs: Last year this game would have been filed under "black out". This week, with Tennessee the only undefeated team left, it is the most bet on game heading into Week 7.

The Chiefs have been awful as expected this season. The Titans have far exceeded expectations.

After opening as the +7 ½ underdog, Kansas City finds itself at +9 hosting this impressive Titans team.

Tennessee's success is due mostly to a stingy defense that has held opponents to 288.6 yards per game -- fourth-best in the NFL -- and a league-low 11.2 points a contest while leading the NFL with 14 turnovers. That unit yielded 285 yards and had two interceptions in the win over the Ravens.

But for as many positives as they've had thus far, the Titans know there is still room for improvement, such as eliminating penalties. They were saddled with 10 for 78 yards last time out, and a pair of 15-yard infractions keyed Baltimore's scoring drives.

"Even though we are 5-0, we're always trying to find ways to get better," linebacker Keith Bulluck said. "The coaches don't necessarily have to tell us what's wrong. We can already figure out what's wrong and try to get better at it."

Tennessee also looks to strengthen its offense, which has averaged 289.0 yards and was limited to a season-low 210 versus the Ravens. Quarterback Kerry Collins was intercepted twice, but went 17-of-32 for 163 yards and his 11-yard touchdown pass to Alge Crumpler with 1:56 to play was the difference.

The Titans might be able to improve their offensive production versus a Chiefs team that has allowed 396.6 yards per game -- fourth-worst in the league.

Over the last nine games, Tennessee has managed to beat Kansas City by more than 8 points only once, a nine point win last year. That win just happened to be in Kansas City as well.

It's difficult to figure out which Kansas City team will show up here. They clobbered Denver one week only to score zero points the week that followed.

The betting public is all over Tennessee at a 75 percent clip.
